Sometimes, an eclectic addition to a collection can be a good thing. Something that looks markedly unique from a sea of standard divers and fliegers. Maybe it’s bigger. Or maybe it features a lugless design. Perhaps instead of a traditional handset, it uses marked discs to tell the time. If you put all these maybes together, that something different is the Zelos Cosmos.Zelos is no stranger to worn&wound. The brand has had a number of successful Kickstarter campaigns under its belt, among them the unapologetic Helmsman and Abyss divers, as well as the minimalist Chroma. Likewise, the Cosmos was brought to life through a crowdfunding campaign back in 2015. Whatever Zelos’ magic formula may be, it has meant continued success in terms of getting the funding needed to bring each concept to reality.
The Cosmos is in many ways the successor to the aforementioned Chroma. From the case to the dial, the foundation is all there. And by building on what has come before, it is safe to say that the Cosmos is Zelos’ most ambitious design both in terms of aesthetics and manufacturing capablity.
